So today I did the strangest thing. I woke up early to pamper my skin. I know what you’re thinking. “Tara, how could you possibly wake up early to do a mask before your 10 am class when you went to bed at 3 am after doing hours of Organic Chemistry? Priorities.” Well. That late night meant that my eyes were sore, stingy, and puffy.
I needed a quick fix and remembered that a while back I picked up one of these Freeman Coffee & Chai Energizing Paper Eye Masks. I had stuck it in the fridge so it could get its chill on. I figured the coolness, much like the coolness of the roller ball in the Origins No-Puffery roll on, would help depuff my little eyes away.
In order to help my eyes feel less like they had lemon juice in them, I broke out this sheet mask and became Robin of Batman and Robin. The little sheet mask is soaked in coffee and chai essence and applies really comfortably. Unlike some other sheet masks, it wasn’t over soaking in product and the sheet itself was soft. I left it on for 10 minutes while I had my breakfast and then removed it. The instructions say not to wash away the leftover essence and I found that the excess melting into my skin with ease.To my surprise, my eyes not only felt better, but were noticeably less puffy. My skin was soft and had a really hydrated appearance. I have had awesome luck with all of Freeman’s sheet masks and other masks in the past and am happy to say that I’ll be repurchasing this little guy for a future late night. I’m imagining any of you 21+ people might like these for hangover mornings or even just in general. No drinking required.
What do you guys think? Would you use a mask like this? Do you ever use masks in the morning? I don’t know, I kind of liked having a little calm pamper time before the day started. It made me feel fantastic. Lame? Maybe. But true. I hope you all are doing well and getting ready for a nice weekend.
We shall talk soon!
